India vs New Zealand Match Details

Match: India vs New Zealand, 3rd T20I | New Zealand tour of India  

Date: Wednesday, 1 Feb 2023 

Time: 18:30 (GMT+5) / 19:00 (GMT+5.5) / 19:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad       

India vs New Zealand Preview

  • In the last 10 meetings between the two teams, New Zealand has just twice defeated India.
  • Indians are a formidable team in these circumstances, having lost just three of their last ten home games.
  • Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shubman Gill, and Hardik Pandya are four effective batsmen for India. 


On Wednesday night in Ahmedabad, the IT20 series between India and New Zealand comes to an end. After India tied the game on Sunday in Lucknow by six wickets with one ball left on a track that was conducive to spin, the series is now tied at one. At 19:00 local time, the last game of the series begins at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. 

India last won consecutive IT20s nine games ago, but they should have the talent to defeat New Zealand in this game and win the series.

The New Zealand team will be happy to see a less spin-friendly surface for this pivotal game, as will the management. Although it will be a difficult match, the visitors have already proven they are capable of defeating India in this series.

India vs New Zealand Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

On February 1, Ahmedabad will see bright skies, and we anticipate a cool evening.

It’s difficult to bat first on this surface. Due to the level field making high scores easy to follow, most teams have won games here by chasing the score. In this game, the team that wins the toss will be pleased to request that their rival bat first.

The game’s conditions will be ideal for spinners because the dry surface will cause the ball to turn.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Umran Malik, a pace bowler, was replaced by spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the lineup on Sunday, but since spinners are likely to be far less effective on this surface, we anticipate Malik to be back in the lineup. We don’t foresee any additional lineup changes because the series is on the line.

Recent form – W L W L W  

India’s Probable XI

Hardik Pandya (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Deepak Hooda, Kuldeep Yadav, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh  

New Zealand News & Probable Playing XIs

We anticipate New Zealand to stick with the same lineup in this game after choosing the same team for their first two games of the series. In Lucknow, they came close to winning, and since then, no players have reported any injuries. 

Recent form – L W T L L

New Zealand’s Probable XI

Mitchell Santner (C), Devon Conway (wk), Mark Chapman, Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell,  Ish Sodhi, Michael Bracewell, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy

It is unfortunate that this series will end after this game after both teams have won one game. However, in their quest to win this game and the series, India and New Zealand will leave nothing to chance. India’s victory on a spinning wicket came as no surprise, and we anticipate a closer game on a faster surface. We support India to win the match and end the series because they have the match-winners with the bat.
